The local Ukrainian eateries (in New York City), and
Polish too IIRC, serve challah, and there's no reason
they couldn't put ham and cheese on it. Perhaps it's
an Eastern European thing turned Ashkenazi?
I just confirmed with our resident Ukrainian here at
the office that challah is quite an ordinary thing
among non-Jewish Ukrainians, and is often eaten around
Christmastime. He didn't know if it was a Jewish
thing adopted by Ukrainians, or vice versa.
